Start date 25/07/2013 – End date 13/11/2013

The National Marine Plan (NMP) will introduce, for the first time, statutory marine planning in Scottish waters out to 200 nautical miles.

It will provide integrated management of marine resources ensuring they are managed sustainably for the long term.

The NMP will set out marine planning policies for key marine industries and activities (renewable energy, fishing, aquaculture, recreation/tourism, shipping, oil and gas and CCS) supporting their economic growth while ensuring growth occurs in balance with the protection of natural and historic heritage.
